Let The Work Begin

October 12, 2010

Tuesday was our first full day of training. Our daily schedule goes something like this: 5:30 - 6:00 am get up, shower dress and get to breakfast; 8:00 am classes begin we are to be in our seats 10 minutes early. 9:00 am move to a different building and work in smaller groups we get a break in here, then continue small group study, all of this is Preach My Gospel training. 12:00 Lunch. 1:30 - 2:30 pm large group meeting 2:30 - 4:45 small group meetings 5:00 pm Dinner. In the evenings there is language tutoring, computer tutoring or on Tuesdays a devotional. 8:00 p.m. we can usually head to our apartment and collapse. The training is awesome, we have young returned missionaries as trainers. Part of the training is learning to use Preach My Gospel, preparing outlines and discussions then practicing on real people. They have volunteers who come in and pretend to be non-members we are videoed and then suggestions can be given and improvements made. The senior missionaries only get 4 days of this training, so it is pretty accelerated. Remember when I said we could go to our apartment and rest, I forgot that we always have assignments to prepare for the next day. It has been a wonderful week of learning. Many in our group finished up on Friday and headed out for their mission. Some of us who are welfare, humanitarian, CES, employment etc have extra training. The Spirit is so great here, I'm lovn' it!!!
